    Welcome to BAF someday and thank you for posting your questions here regarding your site.
    I don't think there's another way to get traffic that doesn't involve promoting.
    You know, site's like forums and blogs, get noticed with the use of promotion. ANd I think without pushing, even a little effort, you won't get any traffic to it.

    Hello Someday

    There are simple techniques to drive free traffic to your website, however they do require some time setting up or constant daily tasks.

    My suggestion would be to start researching social media techniques as I personally get more free traffic from Facebook than the 15+ other techniques that i use every day.

    Regards

    Jo

    Welcome to Business Advice Forum someday, thanks for joining. It's difficult to generate traffic to your site without spending either time or money to help promote it.

    One thing you could do is run a referral contest and reward your existing members in some way for referring new people to your forum. When running a referral contest you should be careful to only reward members who make quality referrals. You don't want to reward members who refer people who join your forum but never post or become active on it.

    If you'd like, please share a link to your forum and we will try to offer you more specific suggestions.

    someday who is your forum targeted at, or to put it another way, what type of person would benefit from joining and posting on your forum?

    How will they benefit from participating on your forum?

    The benefits of joining your forum should be clear, within a few seconds of visiting your site home page, they are not very clear at the moment. Can you think of a slogan or short statement that would help to clarify that?

    As an example, Business Advice Forum is targeted at small business owners and those planning on starting their small business. The main benefit we provide to our members, as stated in our slogan, is "Free business advice and support". I know that we are not perfect and have room for improvement, but that kind of clarity could help your forum.

    You dont have time to post and you dont willing to pay but expect to get tons of traffic?
    It is just as you nether work nor run business but expect to get rich, do you think it is possible?

    The best way to generate traffic using forums are:

    Forum signature
    Social bookmarking
    Press release
    Email marketing
    Social media

    Are you not supposed to be concerned about getting members rather than just the traffic if its a forum? I mean, what i did to gain members to forum was that i provided them incentives, free downloads of computer science syllabus and other documentation resources that they need in new forum threads and i used to get like tens of members everyday. But unfortunately none of those hundreds of members even said thank you for giving them free downloads, but hopefully it should work out for you.

    Other method can be to add few informative posts that can give some organic traffic....
